Review summary

Love carnival! We are all about the fun! It was nice having 4 ports for those who get a little seasick.

Fastest embarkation yet! Had barely gotten to port and was already on board. Very smooth process in Miami

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Buffet was average as usual. Dining room excelled on service and food most nights was very tasty. Italian restaurant was excellent food but a little less friendly with service. Guys was great. Drink prices were still too pricey

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Always something to do. Sky course, mini golf, Clue, scavenger hunts, too many to name. Never bored.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Clean but hated the lido deck layout. Made it too small and then allowed smoking on the deck between the pool and sports deck. It is covered so you can smell the smoke above and below. Terrible place to put that

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Size is just fine for 2 people. Easy to get around. Balcony is small but still nice to have

Ship tip

Enjoy the front of the ship from deck 6 or 7 as you enter ports. It is less crowded than watching from lido or higher

Beautiful port and waters. No excursion just walked. Pirate museum was a lot of fun. Cheap cab ride after that to downtown for lunch and exploring. Fun day

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Very nice place. Took a shuttle tour not booked through Carnival and had a great time for a much cheaper price. Then explored the fort on foot and lunch and shopping . Cool place

Grand Turk Island

Not much to this place. Disappointed. Beach excursion at private house was very nice but again...not much to the island
